What are you reading this summer? I’ve got a towering pile. Here’s a list of new books I’ve got on my long list of middle grade:
In no particular order, the novels on my list are:
Sara Pennypacker, PAX – actually, I just finished this novel and loved it. A boy, a fox, separated by war. Will they be reunited?
Kathi Appelt & Alison McGhee, MAYBE A FOX – I’m reading this one currently. Two sisters dealing with loss. Beautiful and heartbreaking.
Ally Condie, SUMMERLOST
Nanci Turner Steveson, SWING SIDEWAYS
Lauren Wolk, WOLF HOLLOW
Megan Frazer Blakemore, THE FIREFLY CODE
Jen Malone, THE SLEEPOVER
Kate Messner, THE SEVENTH WISH
Ammi-Joan Paquette, PRINCESS JUNIPER OF THE ANJU
Lisa Schroeder, SEALED WITH A SECRET
Kate DiCamillo, RAMIE NIGHTINGALE
Lindsay Eagar, HOUR OF THE BEES
